DaJohn Harris, DT, USC

DaJohn Harris made the right choice to stay in school last season and improved his fundamentals in his senior season with the USC Trojans.

Harris has some nice weight in his lower half, which he uses to his advantage with a strong base and low pad level. He typically looks to attack straight ahead with a bull rush and will need to adapt his game to develop more moves in his pass rush. He can usually hold his ground in double teams, but isn't a threat to shoot the gap or really blow anyone off the line. Harris like to rip blockers to one side and attack the ball-carrier.

Off the snap, he does well to stay low and engage with his blocker. If he loses in the race to initial contact, he can be a liability as he doesn't have much arsenal to get reset into a second mode of attack. He should compete for a starting spot at the next level but would be best served with a year coming off the bench.

Harris had a nice Senior Bowl week which should secure him a place in the middle rounds, but he lacks the special athleticism and upside to go much earlier than that.
